Brooklyn Nets Form & Team News


Aside from one slip-up, Brooklyn made straightforward work of Boston in the first round.

The Nets won the series in five games and put up 123+ points on three occasions.

They are now threatening to repeat that effort in this series with Milwaukee.

Kevin Durant (29 points, 10 rebounds) and Blake Griffin (18 points, 14 rebounds) both put up double doubles as the Nets took Game 115-107.

Durant then ran over Milwaukee again in Game 2, racking up 32 points in a 125-86 blowout of the Bucks.

Victory in Game 3 would put Brooklyn on the brink of advancing but they may have to do it without James Harden.

Harden remains day-to-day with the hamstring injury he suffered during Game 1.

Jeff Green (foot) is also considered day-to-day, but Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is done for the season.

Milwaukee Bucks Form & Team News


Milwaukee exorcised the demons of last season’s playoff defeat to Miami in the first round.

The Bucks blew out the Heat in a 4-0 whitewash but now find themselves in serious danger of being swept.

Giannis Antetokounmpo put up a double double in Game 1 with 34 points and 11 rebounds, but that was not enough to prevent a 115-107 defeat.

Giannis managed another double double in Game 2 but came up short in crucial moments.

Team-mate Khris Middleton had a shocker as he turned the ball over 5 times and made just 3 of his 8 three-point attempts.

This all resulted in an embarrassing 125-86 defeat that has the Bucks reeling as they head home.

Milwaukee desperately need a win and the good news is that the men they rely on most are healthy.

Only Jordan Nwora (thigh) and Donte DiVincenzo (foot) feature on the injury report.
